MARCH 2011: C2 Letters To The Editor...
Author: Our Readers
I was disappointed that none of your featured articles in “C2 Dental Department” made an attempt to highlight the valuable roles that registered dental hygienists and certified dental assistants play in enabling these dentists to offer quality services to clients.
While one article mentioned the word “staff” and another the word “team” only one used the vernacular word “hygienist”, but not the professional title of dental hygienist, and that article used the words “lovely … wife” preceding hygienist to refer to a dentist’s spouse.
Your readers may have been better served with an explanation of the educational and credentialing rigors dental hygienists and dental assistants must go through to obtain licensure to practice. I would have thought that at least one of these dentists would have wanted the public to know that he or she only employs licensed and credentialed oral healthcare professionals and that these individuals could have been named in the articles as prominently.

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the coverage of Hospice & Hearts: A Red Carpet Affair. The event sold out and was a great success! As you can see from the attached photos the ladies looked fabulous and had a wonderful time. In attendance were some of the Real Housewives of Hilton Head, Mary Poppins, Bjork, Audrey Hepburn, Doris Day and quite a few Runaway Brides.
We also appreciate your assistance in securing some of the CH2 Bachelors for the silent auction. They, along with a few other local gentlemen will be “dates” to our Hospice Care of the Lowcountry Yacht Hop on May 1, 2011.
Again, thank you for your support!
